different than the average person. so let's deal with the top three. let's start with dallas. dallas we know is a growing city. what makes it attractive for the military? >> all three of these top cities are not really military cities, per se. so that's what surprised us. dallas particularly, it's a tech send trick city, very clean, low crime rate, high population, but the thing that works there is it's also got high employee employ ability. so there's a is a great choice. >> brian: phoenix, a lot of people are buying homes. something that seems to be affordable and that is also a growing city. >> yes. it's very affordable. both mortgages are cheaper and rent is lower than national average. also a lot of educational opportunities. as i said in the outset, we looked at education heavily in this survey. >> brian: they also have a lot of contracting jobs and a lot of the men and women seem to like that and high number of government jobs. the last one and this is surprise to go a degree, pittsburgh. pittsburgh we know is starting to become a booming city as they get away from steel a little bit.
